The United States School of Piping is dedicated to the memory of the school's founder, Jim "Seamus" Thomson. Jim organized and steered the school from its inception until he died in November, 2009. Without question, there would be no school without Jim's hard work. He ran the school for the students and to promote the music and traditions of the Great Highland Bagpipe and drumming. While Jim is gone, his memory will always be with this school and its students. Jim Thomson is greatly missed.
